Angry BirdsHeralding a new era of violent, mobile game-based cinema that’s bad for children. Attack!
May 20, 2016 could be a date that changes Hollywood. That’s the day when The Angry Birds Movie, the first blockbuster based on a mobile game, opens in US cinemas.
We can be fairly confident that the film will be a blockbuster; an unbelievable two billion people have downloaded the game, so just a small fraction of that number would guarantee success at the box office.
The Red Bulletin presents Game Changers. The people, things and ideas that will change our lives in 2016.
And if those angry little birdies reach impressive heights on what is traditionally the best opening weekend on the film calendar, we can expect further mobile game-based films to follow hot on their tail feathers. The scripts for Fruit Ninja, Doodle Jump and Candy Crush Saga are no doubt already taking up space on Hollywood hard drives.
